Port Qasim Authority (PQA),
I would like to draw your kind attention towards a sensitive issue related to security outside the Port Qasim Area.
This is a very important area where goods worth millions of rupees move all the time but there is no patrolling by the officials of Port Qasim Authority (PQA), police and other security agencies on the 13-Kilometer main road leading to Port Qasim. Besides, there are no proper lighting arrangements on the road. Whatever street lights are installed on the Port Qasim Road are not working properly.
People doing business around the port have expressed serious concern because criminal incidents are on the rise due to the absence of security officials and basic facilities around Port Qasim Authority (PQA).
It is pertinent to mention here that the Port Qasim Authority (PQA) has recently increased its staff strength by recruiting more officials, especially in the Security Department. However, there is no improvement in the security situation.
In view of the above I will request the authorities concerned to take appropriate steps in order to enhance security in the vicinity of Port Qasim.
